JS Snippet

Hello, I'm trying to focus on the first visible input field when a button is clicked. I am using 'JavaScript Snippet', with jquery 1.12.4. Looks like the focus action is getting overridden by something. I do see a flash when the field gets focused but then its off. I tried putting the snippet in the beginning, as well as at the end of the page. Fields are initialized inside a data view, with microflow as the data source. The button also resides inside the same data view. Any idea what could be overriding my js snippet?

Hi Vertika,

Maybe you can try using the javascript button. This allows you to execute javascript before executing a microflow. 



Also it might help to share your javascript. 


Hi Austin, Thank you for the reply. I downloaded the JavaScript button.mpk from app store but I don't see it in Add-Ons or in Project Explorer. How I'm supposed to use JS button in modeler?

My current js code is:


where '.focusField' is class assigned to all input fields that needs to be focused at some click.

Earlier, I tried:

 $(document).ready(function () { $('input[type="text"]').on('click', function () { this.select(); }); }) 

and before that, I tried:

var btn = $('.orangeBtn').eq(5); btn.click(function() { $('.focusField').find('input:first').focus(); }); 

where '.orangeBtn' is the class assigned to buttons in different divisions and will be clicked at some point. (this code worked fine in JSFiddle online editor).
